I'm trying to find out if Plaquenil helps to normalize the results of my autoimmune blood work. My results are better. Is it due to the Plaquenil or am I just better?

Hello @yellowdoggirl I wasn’t able to find anything related to you question. Have you discussed this with your doctor?

I have not yet inquired about it with the doctor. I have a few things to ask about so I am saving them to ask all at once.
Also wonder if Plaquenil improves dry eyes and mouth, all part of UCTD.
@yellowdoggirl so you’ve got lots of questions for the doctor! I sure hope that you are writing them down in a notebook that you take with you. When do you see your doctor?
@becsbuddy, I will see him in October, but I can send a message to ask things anytime.
It is hard for me to believe that the things I have are real, not imagined and that the Plaquenil has helped as much as I think.
I don't want to be an unnecessary bother sending many separate messages.
He has told me that it takes time, 2-4 weeks to see symptom changes from Plaquenil reduction or increase. (I think I already feel changes (negative) after 8 days or so. but I want to wait and see how it is after the amount of time he said.
Thank you for the reminder to keep a list!
